Where did it all go so wrong ?

Post by mikeseaton on Fri 18 Jul 2014, 7:49 pm

Check out this archived ICANN document - which had so much hope and ambition for the radical .tel extension - at https://archive.icann.org/en/tlds/tel3/doc_01.htm

Here's a couple of quotes from it:

Telnic propose the creation of a new .TEL gTLD that will be task-related specific to Voice-Video-Data.

Like most good ideas, the .TEL concept is simple. We propose a .TEL top-level domain - that will eventually have relating subdomains - that will be universally recognised and used as a DNS addressing system for people to �dial� and communicate using any Internet enabled device with speech capability. Proof of working concept have been undertaken with .TEL, including a defining practical demonstration with Ericsson,� using their broadband next-generation UMTS platform.� Please refer to the confirmation of this� in the letter from Ericsson contained in the Appendix

It will represent the next-generation of point-to-point addressing for voice-video-data. By voice-video-data we mean that as the world enters an all Internet Protocol (IP) environment when voice (voice-telephony) will become just another data element, it will then be possible to combine this voice data will other data such as video, imagery, and/or messaging to provide creative Internet solutions and services that go far beyond conventional communication services.

Telnic�s business proposal is relevant to the global Internet community.� To ensure that a wide range of interests within that community are taken into account in the formulation of Telnic�s commercial and technical policies, Telnic proposes to create a Policy Advisory Board, to advise Telnic�s Executive Management Committee and the Board of Directors.

Telnic is seeking an industry leader to chair its Policy Advisory Board.� Cathy Horton, a leading Internet advisor and partner of Squire, Sanders & Dempsey has agreed to serve on the Policy Advisory Board.

The Policy Advisory Board will operate separately from Telnic�s management structure, and will be able to set its own terms of reference, in consultation with ICANN.� Cathy Horton will be responsible for ensuring that the members of the Board represent as wide as possible a range of interest groups within the Internet community

So where - with $35,000,000 of other people's money to spend on development and marketing - did it all go so wrong ?

PS. Projected Total .Tel Regs at 22 March 2014 (end of Year 5) was 19,899,000 !

So where ... did it all go so wrong ?

Very simple answer ... VERY, VERY simple answer:






Phase 1 - Old .tel

1. old .tel page (disaster - epic FAIL)
2. old TelPages directory (disaster - epic FAIL)

Phase 2 - New .tel

1. Telnames page (perfect profile page and quick-links hub)
2. Telnames directory (non-existent)

All it would take, and would have ever taken, is a page that was worth having in a directory that was worth finding it in.

Still ... duh.

Indeed the answer to the initial question is very easy to find:

Telnic never delivered its promises.
Telnic never cared about customer needs.
Telnic thought other people will do the work for them.
Telnic refused any advices.
Telnic thought knowing everything better than experienced industry participants.
Telnic didn't like working together with partners.
Telnic had crazy ideas and never corrected mistakes (e. g. withholding the Telnames development from 95 % of all customers).
Telnic believes it can compete with a technology developed 10 years ago against increasing demands.
Telnic doesn't know how to communicate.
Telnic still doesn't see that it has made many mistakes.
Telnic didn't employ people with the right relationships and the right skills.
Telnic lives in its own world disconnected to the reality.
